My Students

I have the opportunity to work with 27 amazing students each and every day! My class is kind and caring and I love spending my days with them!

Our classroom community is strong and we are like a big group of friends who take care of each other!

They know what each other likes and they look out for each other.

Teaching and learning with this group of kids is amazing! I feel lucky and thankful to be a part of their education! They inspire me every day!

My Project

My students love reading this book series. It's at a reading level that everyone can enjoy. There are fun illustrations, and the books are just the right length for most readers. While reading the Who Was Series, students learn so much about important and inspiring people from all around the world!

In our classroom we all love reading and talking about reading!

We talk about our books every morning and inspire each other with what we are reading. I love when my students share books and pass them around on their own!

My students will be so excited to add these books to our library! Thank you for supporting our readers!
